An autonomic nervous system that co-regulates and self-regulates with ease creates the possibility for clients to move out of their past need for protection and embody a system that finds joy in connection.

Polyvagal-informed therapy honors the role of the autonomic nervous system in shaping our physiological experiences and psychological stories and offers strategies to engage the rhythm of regulation in fostering change.  The Rhythm of Regulation Clinical Training Series is designed to help clinicians become fluent in the language of Polyvagal Theory and bring a  polyvagal framework to their clinical interventions.
